Fig. 12 FASTENING DRILL PRESS TO A SUPPORTING SURFACE PERMANENT MOUNTING If your drill press is to be used in one permanent location, the drill press base must be secured to the supporting surface with fasteners through the two mounting holes, (A) Fig. 12A, in the drill press base (B). Fig. 12A MOUNTING YOUR DRILL PRESS TO A PLYWOOD BASE If you do not fasten your drill press in a permanent manner, the drill press must be fastened to a plywood mounting board to prevent the drill press from tipping over during normal use. Use a good grade of plywood with a minimum 3/4" thickness. Do not make the mounting board from particle board since particle board can unexpectedly break. 1. Drill two 3/8" diameter holes (C) Fig. 12B, corresponding to the mounting holes (A) Fig. 12A, of the drill press base in a 21" by 28" minimum size plywood board (D) Fig. 12B. 2. Fasten the drill press base to the mounting board using the carriage bolts, nuts, and washers (E) Fig. 12B, furnished with your drill press. The carriage bolt heads must be countersunk such that the bolt heads are flush with the bottom surface of the mounting board in order to guarantee proper stability. 3. When the drill press is mounted to the supporting board, the board must extend a minimum of 3" beyond each edge of the drill press base, as shown in Fig. 12C. 4. The plywood base must be secured to the floor or supporting surface if there is any tendency of the drill press to vibrate, slide or walk during normal operation. Fig. 12B MOTOR SPECIFICATIONS AND ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS MOTOR SPECIFICATIONS Your drill press is designed to use a 1720 RPM motor. It is wired at the factory for 110-120 Volts, 60 Hz alternating current. Never use a motor that runs faster than 1720 RPM. power connections A separate grounded electrical circuit should be used for your drill press. This circuit should not be less than #12 wire and should be protected with a 20 amp fuse or circuit breaker. Before connecting the drill press to the power line, make sure the switch is in the “OFF” position. If the power cord is worn, cut or damaged in any way, have it replaced immediately by a certified electrician to avoid electrical shock or fire hazard. EXTENSION CORDS Use proper extension cords. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current your product will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. Fig. 12D, shows the correct gage to use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the heavier the cord.

In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This tool is equipped with an electric cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into a matching outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances. Do not modify the plug provided - if it will not fit the outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in risk of electric shock. The conductor with insulation having an outer surface that is green with or without yellow stripes is the equipment-grounding conductor. If repair or replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipment grounding conductor to a live terminal. Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if in doubt as to whether the tool is properly grounded. Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong grounding type plugs and 3-hole receptacles that accept the tool's plug. Repair or replace damaged or worn cord immediately. GROUNDED OUTLET BOX 110-120 VOLT OPERATION As received, your drill press is ready-to-run for 110-120 volt operation. This drill press, when wired for 110-120 volts, is intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet and a plug that looks like the one shown in Fig. 13. A temporary adapter, which looks like the adapter illustrated in Fig. 14, may be used to connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle, as shown in Fig. 14 if a properly grounded outlet is not avail-able. The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet can be installed by a qualified electrician. THIS ADAPTER IS NOT APPLICABLE IN CANADA. The green-colored rigid ear, lug, and the like, extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground, such as a properly grounded outlet box, as shown in Fig. 14. CURRENT CARRYING PRONGS GROUNDING BLADE IS LONGEST OF THE 3 BLADES Fig. 13 HOLES GROUNDED OUTLET BOX GROUNDING MEANS 220-240 VOLT OPERATION Your drill press may be converted for 220-240 volt operation. The conversion of your drill press for 220-240 volt operation must be done by qualified electrical personnel. Should you desire to have your drill press converted for 220-240 volt operation take your drill press to your local Authorized Delta Service Center. You can phone 800-438-2486 for the location of the nearest Authorized Service Center. When converted for 220-240 volt operation, your drill press is intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet like the one illustrated in Fig. 14A. After conversion for 220-240 volts, the drill press will have a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in Fig. 14A. Make sure the drill press is connected to an outlet having the same configuration as the plug. No adapter is available or should be used when the drill press is converted for 220-240 volts. If the drill press must be reconnected for use on a different type of electrical circuit, the reconnection should be made by qualified service personnel; and after reconnection, the tool should comply with all local codes and ordinances. HOLES ADAPTER Fig. 14 CURRENT-CARRYING PRONGS 230 VOLT GROUND PRONG Fig. 14A SPINDLE SPEEDS Twelve spindle speeds of 250, 360, 410, 540, 590, 650, 1090, 1280, 1450, 1820, 2180 and 3000 RPM are available with the 14" Drill Press.

The table can be rotated 360 degrees on the column by loosening locking lever (A) Fig. 19, rotate table to desired position and tighten locking lever (A). Fig. 19 3. The table can be tilted right or left by pulling out and removing table alignment pin (C) Fig. 20, and loosening table locking bolt (D). NOTE: If pin (C) is difficult to remove, turn nut (E) clockwise to pull pin out of casting. Tilt table to the desired angle and tighten bolt (D). Fig. 20 4. When returning table to the level position, replace table alignment pin (C) Fig. 21. This will automatically position the table surface at 90 degrees to the spindle. Then tighten bolt (D). Fig. 21 5. A tilt scale (E) Fig. 22, is provided on the table bracket casting to indicate the degree of tilt. A witness line (F) is also provided on the table to line up with scale (E). Fig. 22 DRILLING HOLES TO DEPTH Where a number of holes are to be drilled to exactly the same depth, a depth stop is provided in the pinion shaft housing and is used as follows: 1. Loosen lock screw (A) Fig. 23, and rotate housing (B) until the pointer (C) lines up with the desired depth indicated on scale (D). Then tighten lock screw (A). 2. All holes will then be drilled to the exact depth as indicated on scale (D) Fig. 23. NOTE: Scale (D) is calibrated in both inches and metric. Fig. 23 ADJUSTING SPINDLE RETURN SPRING For the purpose of automatically returning the spindle upward after a hole has been drilled, a spindle return spring is provided in the spring housing (A) Fig. 24. This spring has been properly adjusted at the factory and should not be disturbed unless absolutely necessary. To adjust the return spring, proceed as follows: 1. DISCONNECT THE DRILL PRESS FROM THE POWER SOURCE. 2. Loosen the two nuts (B) Fig. 24, approximately 1/4". Do not remove nuts (B) from shaft (C). 3. While firmly holding spring housing (A) Fig. 25, pull out housing and rotate it until the boss (D) is engaged with the next notch on the housing. Turn the housing counterclockwise to increase and clockwise to decrease spring tension. Then tighten the two nuts (B) to hold the housing in place. Fig. 24 IMPORTANT: Inside nut (B) should not contact spring housing (A) when tight. Fig. 25 OPERATION Your drill press is to be used with drill bits of 5/8" or less in diameter. The following directions will give the inexperienced operator a start on common drill press operations. Use scrap material for practice to get a feel of the machine before attempting regular work. IMPORTANT: When the workpiece is long enough it should always be positioned on the table with one end against the column, as shown in Fig. 26. This prevents the workpiece from rotating with the drill bit or cutting tool, causing damage to the workpiece or personal injury to the operator. If it is not possible to support the workpiece against the column, the workpiece should always be fastened to thetable using clamps or a vise. Fig. 26 CORRECT DRILLING SPEEDS Factors which determine the best speed to use in any drill press operations are: kind of material being worked, size of hole, type of drill or other cutter, and quality of cut desired. The smaller the drill, the greater the required RPM. In soft materials, the speed should be higher than for hard metals. WARNING: Use the recommended speed for the drill press bit and workpiece material. As a guideline for the speed to use for different drill diameters and materials, refer to the chart located on the inside top cover of the drill press for your convenience. BORING IN WOOD Twist drills, although intended for metal drilling, may also be used for boring holes in wood. However, machine spur bits are generally preferred for working in wood; they cut a square bottom hole and are designed for removal of wood chips. Do not use hand bits which have a screw tip; at drill press speeds they turn into the wood so rapidly as to lift the work off the table and whirl it. For through boring, line up the table so that the bit will enter the center hole to avoid damage. Scribe a vertical line on the front of the column and a matchmark on the table bracket, so that the table can be clamped in the center position at any height. Feed slowly when the bit is about to cut through the wood to prevent splintering the bottom face. Use a scrap piece of wood for a base block under the work. This helps to reduce splintering and protects the point of the bit. DRILLING IN METAL Use clamps to hold the work when drilling in metal. The work should never be held in the bare hand; the lips of the drill may seize the work at any time, especially when breaking through the stock. If the piece is whirled out of the operator’s hand, he may be injured. In any case, the drill will be broken when the work strikes the column. The work must be clamped firmly while drilling; any tilting, twisting or shifting results not only in a rough hole, but also increases drill breakage. For flat work, lay the piece on a wooden base and clamp it firmly down against the table to prevent it from turning. If the piece is of irregular shape and cannot be laid flat on the table, it should be securely blocked and clamped.
